ABSTRACT
We demonstrate that stimulated Raman adiabatic passage (STIRAP) of population from a ground state to an excited state of an atom or molecule is not an optimal control solution to the problem of maximizing the population in the excited state.

    We are concerned with the long-time behavior of global strong solutions to the non-isentropic compressible Navier-Stokes-Poisson system in R, where the electric field is governed by the self-consistent Poisson equation. When the regular initial perturbations belong to H4 (R�) n Due to image...

    We report on a new methodological approach to electrodynamics based on a fluidic viewpoint. We develop a systematic approach establishing analogies between physical magnitudes and isomorphism (structure-preserving mappings) between systems of equations. This methodological approach allows us to...

    We extend the concept of cross-spectral purity from the spectral density to the polarization properties of electromagnetic fields by considering the polarization Stokes parameters. We show that purity conditions similar to those in the case of electromagnetic cross-spectral purity can be derived...

    The electro-osmotic flow near an earthworm body surface is a basic electrokinetic phenomenon that takes place when the earthworm moves in moist soil. The flow within a microthin liquid layer near earthworm's body surface is induced by the electric double layer (EDL) interaction. Such a...

    Numerical investigation of nonequilibrium inductively coupled plasma (ICP) flow was carried out to study the physical properties of the flow inside a 10-kW ICP torch with the working gas being nitrogen. The flow field was described by two-dimensional compressible axisymmetric Navier-Stokes (N-S)...
